Girl In Extreme Pain As Lip Keeps Swelling, Makes Terrifying Discovery (Video)

You’ve probably only seen something like this in your nightmares, but it was a reality for the woman in this video. A video of a live maggot being pulled out from inside the woman’s lip has gone viral and it’s every bit as terrifying as you’d imagine it would be.

The clip, which is a minute-and-a-half long, shows a surgeon struggling to remove the larvae from the patient’s large swollen top lip with a pair of long tweezers. The video has been viewed more than 550,000 times on YouTube, so far.

Her lip looks painful, with the sore bubbling up to the size of a grape, according to MailOnline, however the patient remains still throughout the procedure. The white worm, which was about an inch long, seems to be putting up a fight and resisting being taken out.

The woman is believed to have had oral myiasis, according to MailOnline, which occurs in rare instances when tissue of the mouth or nose are invaded with the larvae of flies that feed off the hosts living or dead tissue, liquid body substance or ingested food.

Oral myiasis is more common in warmer climates, and in individuals who live in poverty or have suffered wounds or injuries to their face. When infestation occurs in the nose or ears, there is a potential for the bugs to penetrate the brain. It is extremely rare to see larvae inside the lips or mouth.
